Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop

Today is the first day of the
Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop!

The Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop runs from 12:01am April 16th through to 11:59pm April 22nd and is hosted by Riverina Romantics.  Participating authors and bloggers are giving away books, swag, and other goodies that feature Hunky Heroes.  So, for my contest, I've decided to give away a signed copy of Night Reigns, the second book in my Immortal Guardians paranormal romance series, which features a hunky hero named Marcus Grayden.  I'll also include some Immortal Guardians swag, including one of the Phantom Shadows cover flats I just received.  :-)

Ami isn't much for trusting strangers.  She has a hard time trusting anyone.  But she's no coward, and she's no pushover in the protection department either.  So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vampires on his own, she doesn't hesitate to save his bacon.  Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into . . .

Marcus Grayden has been an immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and at the moment he's not interested in backup.  From the moment Ami arrives in his life, he can't deny that she's strong, smart, and extremely skilled at watching his back.  But she's also destroying his protective solitude and stirring desires he can't bear to awaken.  After all, whatever her secrets -- how can she defeat death itself?
